This question brings up another I've recently had. I want to install recessed cans in our kitchen remodel. I'd be great to use CFL's. How will I know which fixtures will accept them? Just look on the box?

These will need to be IC-rated fixtures, BTW.

Thanks, and sorry for the thread-jack!

The type of bulbs installed in the housing is dictated by which trim is installed. Different trims will accept different bulbs. Sometimes a variety is available with each trim.

Or you could just install a housing made for fluorescent bulbs.
